"Cuomo absurdly desired" 40 thousand. ALV". We gave him a small amount of it, and there was enough of it. The state should have had them in reserve!" - the President emphasized.

So, the President said that because of the incompetence of that administration, 17 thousand people died, and because of the Obamacare program, $5 billion was wasted.
